Honours in Entrepreneurship
UniSA offers an Honours year in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship. You can gain a Bachelor of Business (Honours) or Bachelor of Management (Honours) or Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) with a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship.
Why do Honours?
An Honours degree provides evidence of elite academic performance and a high level of professional and academic development that is recognised nationally and internationally. It adds value to a first degree, and gives you a competitive advantage in the labour market. Increasingly, employers are looking for people with this qualification, as it identifies high-performing graduates who have been challenged by more advanced academic studies, have learned to draw on world-class knowledge, and have developed their analytical and research skills in fields of business and management. An Honours degree is also a foundation for entry into research degrees, and can help to gain a PhD scholarship. Completing a PhD opens up career possibilities in consulting, in senior management in the private and public sectors, and in the academic world.
Why do Honours in entrepreneurship?
An Honours degree in this field will identify you as a person who wants to do innovative things with their knowledge and has developed an in-depth understanding of the entrepreneurial approach to opportunity recognition and development. Employers are looking for this capability. If you are accepted into this area, you will be allocated a project that will draw on one of the CDE research programs. You will be treated as part of the CDE team. You will gain from taking part in the CDE research reading group and by learning from others in this dynamic team.
Who is this for?
Honours is available to students who have completed a first degree in business, management, accounting, economics or equivalent field and have achieved a GPA of 5 (Credit average) or more. However, you are also welcome to apply if you have completed a first degree in another field and have completed a number of management, business or commerce courses.
